In the latest issue of popular Japanese magazine V-Jump (via Gematsu), a release window for the Nintendo Switch port of Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 was finally confirmed. It will arrive in the region this fall.

The magazine also shared some more specific details regarding the port. Up to six players will be able to locally link their Switch systems for multiplayer, plus it will take advantage of the two Joy-Con by allowing for easy two player bouts. There’s a quirky use of the motion controls, too, where you can unleash a Kamehameha by striking the iconic pose. Finally, as there’s no way to link to the first Xenoverse, a special code will be made available to unlock all playable characters from that game early.

In case you’re unaware, Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 was well received by fans, with its time-travelling plot letting a player customizable character interfere with major battles from the long-running anime adaptation. Combat is frantic, with plenty of air dashing and charge moves, while the roster of playable characters is positively massive.

Given the game has already been localized there’s always the possibility Bandai Namco will fast track a western release of the port. We’ll be sure to let you know if and when it is announced.
